Coastal Foraging Guide

As an Island we have coastal areas on every side we turn, alhough it’s all coastal there is still many different areas and types of habitat, which gives rise to many different types of species for us to forage for. From the coastal marshes where we find marsh samphire and sea purslane to the rocky fronts where we can gather rock samphire and sea kale. It’s all there to be enjoyed.

These guides can be used to help you develop and are best used alongside some hands-on learning which we can help you with on one of our wild food and foraging courses.

The information provided below is made to act as a guide, when foraging for yourself you are ultimately in control of what you do and eat. Remember to only eat what you’re 100% certain of.

If there are any extra guides you’d like to see made or updated then please let us know by getting in touch here.
